I’m often asked how to make a garden more beautiful. The answer is simple: add water. Unfortunately, this advice is usually met with blank stares, and so I realize that it’s not quite so simple. Water doesn’t just mean installing a pool or water feature! It can also mean placing a simple fountain or statue amongst your plants and flowers. Installing such features is not expensive, nor time-consuming, yet the impact can be dramatic. With some basic knowledge about what you want from your garden, you can have the best outdoor space in the neighborhood and spend hours relaxing in it.
Water-themed Garden Ornaments
Water-themed Garden Ornaments
The best way to get compliments in the garden is to add water-themed ornaments. Water features can be used to create a relaxing atmosphere, add tranquility to your home, or create a sense of peace in your garden. These types of decorations will make you stand out from other neighbors and family members who are not using these types of decorations in their gardens or homes.
Water features include fountains, waterfalls, ponds with fish and plants growing on them, ponds with no fish but just plants growing on them. They all have different benefits like adding beauty by looking at it when sitting outside enjoying the weather or even at night time too! They also help with drainage around the home too because some snow melts off in springtime which causes flooding inside homes unless we have something like this installed first then it won’t happen anymore so everyone wins here!
Install a light in your pond.
- Install a light in your pond.
- This will attract birds and bugs, who want to come and enjoy the lights at night.
- Some fish are also attracted by light, so this will also help your fish population increase.
- Frogs like to sit by ponds during the evening hours as well, so if you have frogs in or near your pond, they’ll be able to see their reflections on the water surface better at night thanks to the lights.
- Turtles love sitting by ponds too! They might even want to get into some of those decorative koi ponds we discussed earlier—but don’t worry about them getting out; these turtles are smart enough not just jump straight into something they can’t climb out of easily (that would be silly)! If there is any concern that they might try it anyway (or if once inside they decide there isn’t enough food), then install an underwater heater so that they stay warm enough throughout winter months when cold weather comes around again next year (no one wants frozen turtles).
A fountain or sculpture
If your garden lacks tranquility, perhaps installing a fountain or sculpture would be a good way to change that. Fountains and sculptures are often used as focal points in gardens, adding interest and beauty without taking up too much space. They can also serve as water features, providing a soothing background sound while also helping keep your flowers hydrated.

Additional Benefits of Water Features
Water features are great for the environment. They can help increase biodiversity in your garden, and even reduce the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere by creating a microclimate around your garden.
Water features have benefits for your health. The sound of flowing water has been shown to reduce stress levels and improve mental health, while also reducing blood pressure and heart rate.
They’re good for your mood too! Studies have shown that being exposed to natural elements improves psychological wellbeing, so if you’re feeling down or stressed out, a water feature could be just what you need to perk up!
And finally…did we mention they’re good for your neighbours? It’s amazing how one person’s simple decision (to add some pretty decoration) can affect so many different people around them – including those living nearby who benefit from all these extra benefits described above!
